Alexander III of Macedon, popularly known as Alexander the Great; 356-323 BC), was a Greek king (Basileus) of Macedon who created one of the largest empires in ancient history. He is one of the most famous figures of antiquity, remembered for his tactical ability, his conquests, and for spreading Greek civilization to the East.

Historic U.S. flags hung on the Capitol to celebrate the inauguration of Barack Obama as 44th presidentIt very necessary for this king to consolidate all the nations under the world's largest world empire ever. On the day the inauguration of Obama a very curious flag was hanging against the wall of the White house. It was not the usual United States of America flag, but rather new flag that resembled the European Union's flag.

This is a powerful indication of the intention of the world leaders. They not only want to unite all nations in the United States under one banner, but also the entire world.

Alexander received a classical Greek education, under the tutorship of Aristotle. At the age of 20, he succeeded his father, Philip II of Macedon, to the throne. He inherited a strong kingdom and an experienced army, with most of the city-states of mainland Greece under Macedonian hegemony. After establishing his authority as the political and military leader of Greece, he launched the plans for expansion left by his father.

inaugurationVery little is really known about the live of President Obama. There are disputes about where he was born, his life after school and his education, for all practical purposes he has no past. It was even recently discovered that he also has another name. One thing is sure; some one is trying to hide things from the general public.

Obama is raised for a purpose and a time such as this. He is well versed and an excellent speaker. He is called to inspire the masses. He has an ability with words that makes even the ordinary man realize that no other President speaks like him. From the moment 'go' Obama put many policies and legislations in place to both please the public, but also fulfill his purpose.

On September 24, 2009, Obama became the first sitting U.S. President to preside over a meeting of the United Nations Security Council. [146]

This was very strategic time and purpose to bring Obama in front of all the world leaders. His proposal to reduce nuclear weapons of mass destruction was well received by all the nations who were in agreement with the Non-Proliferation Treaty; the purpose to bring unity between the nations of the world, under banner of peace.

Alexander invaded Persian-ruled Asia Minor, and began a series of campaigns that lasted 10 years. He repeatedly defeated the Persians in battle, and marched through Syria, Egypt, Mesopotamia, Persia, and Bactria. He overthrew the Persian king Darius III and conquered the Empire. In following his desire to reach the "ends of the world and the Great Outer Sea ", he invaded India, but was eventually forced to turn back by the near-mutiny of his troops, who had tired of war.

Alexander died in Babylon, aged 32, before realizing his plans for further campaigns. His empire was torn apart in a series of civil wars, which resulted in the formation of a number of states ruled by Macedonian aristocracy (the Diadochi). Although Alexander's reign was short-lived, his enduring legacy was the cultural diffusion engendered by his conquests. The import of Greek colonists and culture to the East, initiated by Alexander, lead to a new Hellenistic culture, which lasted for centuries. Alexander himself became legendary, as a classical hero in the mould of Achilles, and features prominently in the history and myth of Greek and non-Greek cultures. He became the measure against which military leaders compare themselves, even to this day.

Adolescence and education

When Alexander was thirteen years old, Philip decided that Alexander needed a higher education and he began to search for a tutor. Many people were passed over including Isocrates and Speusippus, Plato 's successor at the Academy of Athens, who offered to resign to take up the post. In the end, Philip offered the job to Aristotle, who accepted, and Philip gave them the Temple of the Nymphs at Mieza as their classroom.

As I have iterated, Obama has received very special training in order to accomplish the purpose of the Illuminati.

The Beginning of Alexander's reign and battle campaigns

After his father's, great divisions and revolt developed in Thebes, Athens, Thessaly and the Thracian tribes to the north of Macedon. When news of the revolts in Greece reached Alexander, he responded quickly. Though his advisors advised him to use diplomacy, Alexander mustered the Macedonian cavalry of 3,000 men and rode south towards Thessaly, Macedon's neighbour to the south. When he found the Thessalian army occupying the pass between Mount Olympus and Mount Ossa, he had the men ride over Mount Ossa. When the Thessalians awoke the next day, they found Alexander in their rear, and promptly surrendered, adding their cavalry to Alexander's force, as he rode down towards the Peloponnesus. [48] [49] [50] [51]

Alexander stopped at Thermopylae, where he was recognized as the leader of the Amphictyonic League before heading south to Corinth. Athens sued for peace and Alexander received the envoy and pardoned anyone involved with the uprising. At Corinth, he was given the title Hegemon, and like Philip, appointed commander of the forthcoming war against Persia. While at Corinth, he heard the news of the Thracian rising to the north. [49] [52]

The entire world, especially the other nations in Europe and the European Union see Obama as ' most popular world leader.' He has been put forward as 'defining factor for his public image.' He has flown across the world, meeting the top leaders and presidents of the world. All have only received him openly as a peace loving honest person who wants peace for all and the advancement of all.

Balkan campaign

Before crossing to Asia, Alexander wanted to safeguard his northern borders and, in the spring of 335 BC, he advanced to suppress several apparent revolts. [53] Starting from Amphipolis, he first went east into the country of the "Independent Thracians", and at Mount Haemus, the Macedonian army attacked and defeated a Thracian army manning the heights. [53] The Macedonians marched on into the country of the Triballi, and proceeded to defeat the Triballian army near the Lyginus river [54] (a tributary of the Danube). Alexander then advanced for three days on to the Danube, encountering the Getae tribe on the opposite shore. Surprising the Getae by crossing the river at night, he forced the Getae army to retreat after the first cavalry skirmish, leaving their town to the Macedonian army. [55] [56] News then reached Alexander that Cleitus, King of Illyria, and King Glaukias of the Taulanti were in open revolt against Macedonian authority. Marching west into Illyria, Alexander defeated each in turn, forcing Cleitus and Glaukias to flee with their armies, leaving Alexander's northern frontier secure. [57] [58]

While he was triumphantly campaigning north, the Thebans and Athenians rebelled once more. Alexander reacted immediately, but, while the other cities once again hesitated, Thebes decided to resist with the utmost vigour. However, the resistance was useless, as the city was razed to the ground amid great bloodshed, and its territory was divided between the other Boeotian cities. The end of Thebes cowed Athens into submission, leaving all of Greece at least outwardly at peace with Alexander. [59]

Syria

Main articles: Battle of Issus and Siege of Tyre

After spending the winter campaigning in Asia Minor, Alexander's army crossed the Cilician Gates in 333 BC, and d efeated the main Persian army under the command of Darius III at the Battle of Issus in November. [68] Darius was forced to flee the battle after his army broke, and in doing so left behind his wife, his two daughters, his mother Sisygambis, and a fabulous amount of treasure. [69] He afterwards offered a peace treaty to Alexander, the concession of the lands he had already conquered, and a ransom of 10,000 talents for his family. Alexander replied that since he was now king of Asia, it was he alone who decided territorial divisions. [70]

Alexander proceeded to take possession of Syria, and most of the coast of the Levant. [71] However, the following year, 332 BC, he was forced to attack Tyre, which he eventually captured after a famous siege. [72] [73] After the capture of Tyre, Alexander crucified all the men of military age, and sold the women and children into slavery. [74]

Back

Egypt

Main article: Siege of Gaza

When Alexander destroyed Tyre, most of the towns on the route to Egypt quickly capitulated, with the exception of Gaza. The stronghold at Gaza was built on a hill and was heavily fortified. [75] At the beginning of the Siege of Gaza, Alexander utilized the engines he had employed against Tyre. After three unsuccessful assaults, the stronghold was finally taken by force, but not before Alexander received a serious shoulder wound. When Gaza was taken, the male population was put to the sword and the women and children were sold into slavery. [76]

In Egypt, President Obama was met with an honorary presidential guard. Obama specifically chose Cairo to address the Muslim and Arab League of nations. Obama has been chosen not only to unite nations but also religions from across the world. Just looking back at his inauguration speech, we can see the words chosen to bring peace and unity. It has been for warn and known by all the prophets that this peace agreement between Egypt, including the Arab League of nations will not last, for it has been prophesied by the prophet Ezekiel:

7 There was also another great eagle, the Egyptian king, with great wings and many feathers; and behold, this vine, Zedekiah, bent its roots languishingly toward him and shot forth its branches toward him, away from the beds of its planting, for him to water. (Ezek 17:7 Ampl) God reveals to the prophet that Israel 's leaders will make an alliance with the leader of Egypt and thus the Arab League of nations. God promises Israel that this treaty or covenant will not stand, but it will be broken and annulled, because it is covenant with death. See the Fasting Journal - Part 2 - An Ungodly Alliance & The Smouldering Mountain - United States of America

But later however this covenant will be broken by the king coming out of the north, as is written: 16 But who comes against him shall do according to his own will, and none shall stand before him; he shall stand in the glorious land of Israel, and in his hand shall be destruction and all the land shall be in his power. 17 He shall set his face to come with the strength of his whole kingdom, and with him upright conditions and terms of peace, and he shall perform them by making an agreement with the king of the South. He shall give him daughter to corrupt and destroy it, his league with Egypt and the kingdom, but it shall not succeed or be to his advantage. (Dan 11:16-17 Ampl) God revealed to the prophet Daniel that this king will come to Israel and will destroy his league or treaty with Egypt. Although he will make and initial agreement 'coming with terms of peace' with Egypt he will break it 3.5 years later. Further God reveal, saying: 27 And as for both of these kings, their hearts and minds shall be set on doing mischief; they shall speak lies over the same table, but it will not succeed, for the end is yet to be at the time appointed. (Dan 11:27 Ampl) Neither of the two leaders who make this peace agreement have it in there minds to keep the agreement. Both were only doing in order to gain advantage over the other. God also reveal to Daniel that the breaking of this peace agreement will cause a massive war that will bring about the appointed time of the end. Satan has always tried to change God's appointed seasons and pre-determined plans to save His people from total annihilation.

Great effort has been made to win the favour of the Egyptian people and the Arab nations by a pre-instigated plan. Very recently Obama made a statement in Egypt while on his Middle East and European tour, visiting the Old pyramids. In the New York post the following article appear and made world news also: BAMIN LAND OF PHAR-'O' - WOWED BY A 'LOOKALIKE' AT PYRAMIDS By ANDY SOLTIS Last Updated: 10:19 A M, June 5, 2009 Posted: 2:17 A M, June 5, 2009

He's the pharaoh-dynamic prez!

A relaxed President Obama turned tourist at the Pyramids yesterday, even joking that an ancient Egyptian in a hieroglyphic had big ears and looked just like him.

Hours after his historic speech at Cairo University, Obama traded his business suit and necktie for sunglasses, a polo shirt, khaki pants and tennis shoes as he got a VIP tour of the only remaining example of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World.

At one point outside the Giza ruins, the president spotted a 4,600-year-old hieroglyph of a man's head outside a tomb. "Hey, this looks like me!" he exclaimed. The president pulled over senior aides, including Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel and advisers David Axelrod and Valerie Jarrett, to inspect the stone engraving, which showed a man with oversized ears. "Look at those ears," Obama said. No one disagreed with the tourist-in-chief.

Zahi Hawass, the secretary general of Egypt 's Supreme Council of Antiquities, told the president he was admiring the likeness of Kar, "a priest, scholar and judge."

The visit to the pyramids and Great Sphinx was a rare break from Obama's business-only routine on foreign trips.

The direct effect, whether instigated behind the scenes or via only the media was that Obama was called: " The New Tutankhamen of the World ". This appeared on slogan and even on T-shirts, metal plaques and other memorabilia in Cairo shops last week in anticipation of his arrival.

On his this same tour, going to Saudi Arabia, Obama received an honorary medal, the King Abdul Aziz Order of Merit from King Abdullah. Obama was presented with an over-sized medallion on a gold chain, known as the King Abdul Aziz Order of Merit. This is the highest award that can be given in Saudi Arabia, and it is given only to the closest friends of the king. The medallion consists of a six-pointed star inside of a seven-pointed star, making thirteen points inside of a sunburst, with a palm tree rising out of it. Obama was also honoured highly in Egypt, where medallions were struck and circulated. One circulating there had the image of an Egyptian Pharaoh and the following words: " Obama - New Tutankhamon of the World." Thus, Obama was declared the new King Tut and Pharaoh of the world. When has such a thing ever happened to a head of state? Our President is now a Pharaoh, the son of the sun-god Ra. See the article below.

Obama has been honoured as the Pharaoh of the world. That says it all. Pharaoh controlled the whole known world around that time. Not only that but would you believe even Alexander the Great was called: " Pharaoh of Egypt and King of Asia " Thus by these indication, the world leaders wants to, by means of the awesome reason abilities of President Obama, his charm, his peaceful appearing nature and goal to unite all nation under one government, bring about the final stage of fulfilling their desire for one new world order. God also has a reasonable response to this, as He said to me on the 29 th of May 2008, saying: "A new spirit is rising up out of the earth - The spirit of Pharaoh and the spirit of the false prophet. This is a spirit that will continually say that it will repent of its wrongs towards God and His people, but after a while will harden its heart repeatedly without true repentance, just like Pharaoh did. Finally they will harden their hearts so much, that I will give them over to their wickedness. For I said: "I will harden whom I harden and I will have mercy on whom I will have mercy." But I am now rising up the Spirit of Moses." Up until that time I have heard of the Spirit of Elijah, but not the Spirit of Moses. God will send His Two Witnesses, who just like Moses and Elijah, will strike the earth with all the plagues of Egypt, granting them the power to prophecy for 1260, before they will be killed.

Jerusalem

Jerusalem, on the other hand, opened its gates in surrender, and according to Josephus, Alexander was shown the book of Daniel's prophecy, presumably chapter 8, where a mighty Greek king would subdue and conquer the Persian Empire. Thereupon, Alexander spared Jerusalem and pushed south into Egypt. [77] [78]

Alexander advanced on Egypt in later 332 BC, where he was regarded as a liberator. [79] He was pronounced the new "master of the Universe" and son of the deity of Amun at the Oracle of Siwa Oasis in the Libyan desert. [80] Henceforth, Alexander often referred to Zeus-Ammon as his true father, and subsequent currency depicted him adorned with ram horns as a symbol of his divinity. [citation needed ] During his stay in Egypt, he founded Alexandria-by-Egypt, which would become the prosperous capital of the Ptolemaic kingdom after his death. [81]

Assyria and Babylonia

Main article: Battle of Gaugamela

Leaving Egypt in 331 BC, Alexander marched eastward into Mesopotamia (now northern Iraq) and defeated Darius once more at the Battle of Gaugamela. [82] Once again, Darius was forced to leave the field, and Alexander chased him as far as Arbela. Darius fled over the mountains to Ecbatana (modern Hamedan), but Alexander instead marched to, and captured Babylon. [83]

Back

Persia

Main article: Battle of the Persian Gate

From Babylon, Alexander went to Susa, one of the Achaemenid capitals, and captured its legendary treasury. [83] Sending the bulk of his army to the Persian ceremonial capital of Persepolis via the Royal Road, Alexander himself took selected troops on the direct route to the city. However, the pass of the Persian Gates (in the modern Zagros Mountains) had been blocked by a Persian army under Ariobarzanes, and Alexander had to storm the pass. Alexander then made a dash for Persepolis before its garrison could loot the treasury. [84] At Persepolis, Alexander allegedly stared at the crumbled statue of Xerxes and decided to leave it on the ground-a symbolic gesture of vengeance. [citation needed ] During their stay at the capital, a fire broke out in the eastern palace of Xerxes and spread to the rest of the city. Theories abound as to whether this was the result of a drunken accident, or a deliberate act of revenge for the burning of the Acropolis of Athens during the Second Persian War.

Fall of the Empire and the East

Alexander then set off in pursuit of Darius again, first into Media, and then Parthia. [85] T he Persian king was no longer in control of his destiny, having been taken prisoner by Bessus, his Bactrian satrap and kinsman. [86] As Alexander approached, Bessus had his men fatally stab the Great King and then declared himself Darius' successor as Artaxerxes V, before retreating into Central Asia to launch a guerrilla campaign against Alexander. [87] Darius was found by one of Alexander's scouts, dying, in a baggage train being pulled by an ox. Before he died, Darius remarked that he was glad that he would not die alone. [citation needed ] His remains were buried by Alexander next to his Achaemenid predecessors in a full regal funeral. [88] Alexander claimed that, while dying, Darius had named him as his successor to the Achaemenid throne. [89] The Achaemenid Empire is considered to have fallen with the death of Darius.

Alexander, now considering himself the legitimate successor to Darius, viewed Bessus as a usurper to the Achaemenid throne, and set out to defeat him. This campaign, which was initially against Bessus, would turn into a grand tour of central Asia, with Alexander founding a series of new cities, all called Alexandria, including modern Kandahar in Afghanistan, and Alexandria Eschate ("The Furthest") in modern Tajikistan. The campaign took Alexander through Media, Parthia, Aria (West Afghanistan), Drangiana, Arachosia (South and Central Afghanistan), Bactria (North and Central Afghanistan), and Scythia. [90]

Bessus was betrayed in 329 BC by Spitamenes, who held an undefined position in the satrapy of Sogdiana. Spitamenes handed over Bessus to Ptolemy, one of Alexander's trusted companions, and Bessus was executed. [91] However, when, at some point later, Alexander was on the Jaxartes, Spitamenes raised Sogdiana in revolt. Alexander launched a campaign and defeated him in the Battle of Gabai; after the defeat, Spitamenes was killed by his own men, who then sued for peace. [92] The majority of the existing Eastern satraps swore loyalty to Alexander, and were allowed to keep their positions. [citation needed ] Alexander took the Persian title "King of Kings" (Shahanshah).

Indian campaign

Main article: Alexander's Indian campaign

Invasion of the Indian subcontinent

After the death of Spitamenes and his marriage to Roxana (Roshanak in Bactrian) to cement his relations with his new Central Asian satrapies, Alexander was finally free to turn his attention to the Indian subcontinent. Alexander invited all the chieftains of the former satrapy of Gandhara, in the north of what is now Pakistan, to come to him and submit to his authority. Omphis (whose actual name is Ambhi), ruler of Taxila, whose kingdom extended from the Indus to the Hydaspes, complied, but the chieftains of some hill clans, including the Aspasioi and Assakenoi sections of the Kambojas (known in Indian texts also as Ashvayanas and Ashvakayanas), refused to submit.

In the winter of 327/326 BC, Alexander personally led a campaign against these clans; the Aspasioi of Kunar valleys, the Guraeans of the Guraeus valley, and the Assakenoi of the Swat and Buner valleys. [96] A fierce contest ensued with the Aspasioi in which Alexander himself was wounded in the shoulder by a dart but eventually the Aspasioi lost the fight. Alexander then faced the Assakenoi, who fought bravely and offered stubborn resistance to Alexander in the strongholds of Massaga, Ora and Aornos. The fort of Massaga could only be reduced after several days of bloody fighting in which Alexander himself was wounded seriously in the ankle. According to Curtius, "Not only did Alexander slaughter the entire population of Massaga, but also did he reduce its buildings to rubbles". [97] A similar slaughter then followed at Ora, another stronghold of the Assakenoi. In the aftermath of Massaga and Ora, numerous Assakenians fled to the fortress of Aornos. Alexander followed close behind their heels and captured the strategic hill-fort after the fourth day of a bloody fight.

After reducing Aornos, Alexander crossed the Indus and fought and won an epic battle against a local ruler Porus, who ruled a region in the Punjab, in the Battle of Hydaspes in 326 BC. After the battle, Alexander was greatly impressed by Porus for his bravery in battle, and therefore made an alliance with him and appointed him as satrap of his own kingdom, even adding some land he did not own before. Alexander then named one of the two new cities that he founded, Bucephala, in honour of the horse who had brought him to India, who had died during the Battle of Hydaspes. [98]

Roughly 14 days before his death, Alexander entertained his admiral Nearchus, and then, instead of going to bed, spent the night and next day drinking with Medius of Larissa. [102] After this, and by the 18 Daesius (a Macedonian month) he had developed a fever, which then grew steadily worse. [102] [103] By 25 Daesius, he was unable to speak. [103] By 26 Daesius, the common soldiers had become anxious about his health, or thought he was already dead. They demanded to see him, and Alexander's generals acquiesced. [103] The soldiers slowly filed past him, whilst Alexander raised his right hand in greeting, still unable to speak. [104] Two days later, on 28 Daesius (although Aristobolus's account says it was 30 Daesius), Alexander was dead. [102] [103] Conversely, Diodorus recounts that Alexander was struck down with pain after downing a large bowl of unmixed wine in honour of Hercules, and (rather mysteriously) died after some agony, [105] which is also mentioned as an alternative by Arrian, but Plutarch specifically refutes this claim. [102]

My only response to the comparing of Obama's coming campaigns against the nations of the east is obvious from those prophecies, which YHWH had revealed to us. They will be given a powerful blow, "knocking them into a cocked hat" Therefore I do not only base the fact that Obama is the type of Alexander the Great based on what he has already done, but on what will happen during his time of office.

This a very important part of history to understand, for this opens up the interpretation of that, which was revealed not only for Daniel's time, but will also now prophetically be fulfilled, in order to bring the man of sin, the Anti-Christ into His position, as was written: 21 And in his place or office shall arise a contemptuous and contemptible person, to whom royal majesty and honor of the kingdom have not been given. But he shall come in without warning in time of security and shall obtain the kingdom by flatteries, intrigues, and cunning hypocritical conduct. [Dan. 8:9-12, 23-25.] 22 Before him the overwhelming forces of invading armies shall be broken and utterly swept away; yes, and a prince of the covenant, with those who were at peace with him also shall be broken and swept away. 23 And from the time that an alliance is made with him he shall work deceitfully, and he shall come up unexpectedly and shall become strong with a small people. (Dan 11:21-23 Ampl) In the place of the man, the 'Alexander the Great', who raises taxes, will arise the 'man of lawlessness', which Daniël, Yahshua and the apostles fore told us, and which we now also confirm to you, will arise in this generation. Thus, the raiser of taxes is not the man. Let continue with the history of Alexander the great, how he was a type of one who would be replaced by the Anti-Christ.

Division of the Empire

Main article: Diadochi

Alexander had no obvious or legitimate heir, his son Alexander IV by Roxane being born after Alexander's death. This left the huge question mark as to who would rule the newly conquered, and barely pacified Empire. [125] According to Diodorus, Alexander's companions asked him when he was on his deathbed to whom he bequeathed his kingdom; his laconic reply was "tôi kratistôi "-"to the strongest". [105] Given that Arrian and Plutarch have Alexander speechless by this point, it is possible that this is an apocryphal story. [126] Diodorus, Curtius and Justin also have the more plausible story of Alexander passing his signet ring to Perdiccas, one of his bodyguard and leader of the companion cavalry, in front of witnesses, thereby possibly nominating Perdiccas as his successor. [105] [125]

In the event, Perdiccas initially avoided explicitly claiming power, instead suggesting that Roxane's baby would be king, if male; with himself, Craterus, Leon natus and Antipater as guardians. [127] However, the infantry, under the command of Meleager, rejected this arrangement since they had been excluded from the discussion. Instead, they supported Alexander's half-brother Philip Arrhidaeus. [127] Eventually, the two sides reconciled, and after the birth of Alexander IV, he and Philip III were appointed joint kings of the Empire-albeit in name only. [127]

It was not long, however, before dissension and rivalry began to afflict the Macedonians. The satrapies handed out by Perdiccas at the Partition of Babylon became power bases for each general, from which to launch his own bid for power. [128] After the assassination of Perdiccas in 321 BC, all semblance of Macedonian unity collapsed, and 40 years of war between 'The Successors' (Diadochi) ensued, before the Hellenistic world settled into four stable power blocks: the Ptolemaic kingdom of Egypt, the Seleucid Empire in the east, the kingdom of Pergamon in Asia minor, and Macedon. [128] In the process both Alexander IV and Philip III were murdered. [128]

The, first might kingdom, united under Alexander the Great was finally divided into four parts: " the Ptolemaic kingdom of Egypt, the Seleucid Empire in the east, the kingdom of Pergamon in Asia minor, and Macedon. [128] In the process both Alexander IV and Philip III were murdered." [128] as was prophesied, saying: 8 And the he-goat, Alexander the Great, magnified himself exceedingly, and when he was young and strong, the great horn was suddenly broken; and instead of him there came up four notable horns to whom the kingdom was divided, one toward each of the four winds of the heavens. (Dan 8:8 Ampl) YHWH, made it very clear that Alexander the Great's kingdom would be divided into four: Egypt in the South, Seleucid Empire in the east, Pergamon in the North and the Macedon kingdom in the west. Then the word of the Lord to Daniel continue, saying: 9 Out of littleness and small beginnings one of them came forth, Antiochus Epiphanes, a horn whose impious presumption and pride grew exceedingly great toward the south and toward the east and toward the ornament, the precious, blessed land of Israel. [Dan. 8:23.] (Dan 8:9 Ampl) Out of one of these horns would come the little horn, full of pride and arrogance, just like Alexander the Great, to be the Anti-Christ. Daniel inquired further into this prophecy and wanted to understand the sequence of the events in more detail. Then, after fasting 21 days, the angel Gabriel appeared to him in a vision, and came and explained how all these things would fulfill at the end of days, saying: 2 And now I will show you the truth. Behold, there shall arise three more kings in Persia, and a fourth shall be far richer than they all. And when he has become strong through his riches he shall stir up and stake all against the realm of Greece. 3 Then a mighty warlike, threatening king shall arise who s hall rule with great dominion and do according to his own will. 4 And as soon as he has fully arisen, his, Alexander the Great's, kingdom shall be broken by his death and divided toward the four winds, the east, west, north, and south of the heavens, but not to his posterity, nor according to the Grecian dominion, which he ruled, for his kingdom shall be torn out and uprooted and go to others, to his four generals, to the exclusion of these. (Dan 11:2-4 Ampl) God revealed to Daniel, that 4 more Medeo-Persian kings would arise in the east: Cambyses, Pseudo-Smerdis, Darius the Great (Darius I Hystaspes) and Xerxes or Ahasuerus. Then a warlike, powerful king would come, out of the west, Alexander the Great. Then after defeating the kingdoms of the east and either destroying or uniting them with the west, his powerful kingdom would be broken up into four. God is very specific, and gives the detail to the prophet Daniel, saying, that his kingdom would not go to His bloodline, or children, but to others. By this, God prophetically, indicates that this powerful kingdom will not be divided among his own people, but will be divided to other kings, who are not part of his direct descendents or kingdom.

In conclusion on this matter: The Holy Spirit spoke to the apostle John about this final king and his kingdom, saying: 7 But the angel said to me, Why do you wonder? I will explain to you the secret symbolic meaning of the mystery of the woman, as well as of the beast having the seven heads and ten horns that carries her. 8 The beast that you saw once was, but now is no more, and he is going to come up out of the Abyss, the bottomless pit and proceed to go to perdition. And the inhabitants of the earth whose names have not been recorded in the Book of Life from the foundation of the world will be astonished when they look at the beast, because he once was, but now is no more, and he is yet to come. [Dan. 7:3.] (Rev 17:7 Ampl) This beast, with its seven heads and 10 horns are not the Anti-Christ, or the king to come who will proclaim himself God, sitting in the temple of God, saying that he is God. This Beast explained by the angel to John as He was explained to Daniel, saying, 7 " After this I saw in the night visions, and behold, a fourth beast, the Roman empire, terrible, powerful and dreadful, and exceedingly strong. And it had great iron teeth; it devoured and crushed and trampled what was left with its feet. And it was different from all the beasts that came before it, and it had ten horns, symbolizing ten kings. [Dan. 2:40-43; 7:23.] (Dan 7:7 Ampl)

God had still kept all these prophecies partially veiled, so that only at the right time, at the appointed time, all might become clear. On the Isla nd of Patmos, God again, only partially opened up to this prophecy to His apostle John Yahshua, explaining it from His perspective in time, saying to him: 9 This calls for a mind, to consider that is packed with wisdom and intelligence, it is something for a particular mode of thinking and judging of thoughts, feelings, and purposes. The seven heads are seven hills upon which the woman is sitting; 10 And they are also seven kings, five of whom have fallen, one still exists and is reigning; the other, the seventh has not yet appeared, and when he does arrive, he must stay, but a brief time. 11 And as for the beast that once was, but now is no more, he himself is an eighth ruler (king, head), but he is of the seven and belongs to them, and he goes to perdition. (Rev 17:10-11 Ampl)

Thus the Beast, is not the eighth king. The beast is a kingdom that will exist in a peculiar way, different from the other kingdoms, until the eighth king comes. This beast has 10 horns and had 7 heads. This is also the same kingdom conglomerate that king Nebuchadnezzar saw in His days, when Daniel interpreted his dream saying to him: 20 And the fourth kingdom, Rome, shall be strong as iron, since iron breaks to pieces and subdues all things; and like iron which crushes, it shall break and crush all these. 41 And as you saw the feet and toes, partly of baked clay of the potter and partly of iron, it shall be a divided kingdom; but there shall be in it some of the firmness and strength of iron, just as you saw the iron mixed with miry earthen clay. 42 And as the toes of the feet were partly of iron and partly of baked clay of the potter, so the kingdom shall be partly strong and partly brittle and broken. 43 And as you saw the iron mixed with miry and earthen clay, so they shall mingle themselves in the seed of men in marriage bonds; but they will not hold together for two such elements or ideologies can never harmonize, even as iron does not mingle itself with clay. (Dan 2:40-43 Ampl) God goes into much prophetic and symbolic language, which is hard to understand, unless opened up to us by the Spirit of prophecy, Yahshua our Messiah and by the Spirit of Truth, can not be understood. They will be twisted and perverted unless God sends us his messengers, His servants the true prophets. For the scriptures says: "I will send you Elijah, the prophet - He will restore all things!" We must not try to interpret which God had not opened up to us, for we will grossly fail.

On the 9 th of May 2001, the Lord appeared to me and said: "I will make My eyes your eyes, so that you will see what I see!" See the prophecy: " A Voice crying in the Wilderness " Since then all these prophecies were revealed to two of us, revealing them from our perspective and for our time. I never claim to fully understand them, and am still learning to see and the Lord Elohim sees, for He said to me: "I found you in the wilderness and kept you as the apple of My eye!" On the 4 th of July, by the grace of God, I, like Paul, was raptured into the heavens and saw many awesome and unexplainable things. See the prophecy series: The Apple of His Eye Parts - 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | I was taken into the heavens so that I could see as God sees. The Spirit of the Father, and the Spirit of our Lord Yahshua the Messiah, said to me: Now you see as I see: You see the past and the future at the same time. While in this place I also saw things from God perspective, outside of time, being in the Spirit, just as the prophet Isaiah saw, when He said about God: 22 It is God Who sits above the circle, the horizon, of the earth, and its inhabitants are like grasshoppers; it is He Who stretches out the heavens like gauze curtains and spreads them out like a tent to dwell in, 23 Who brings dignitaries to nothing, Who makes the judges and rulers of the earth as chaos, emptiness, falsity, and futility. 24 Yes, these men are scarcely planted, scarcely are they sown, scarcely does their stock take root in the earth, when the Lord blows upon them and they wither, and the whirlwind or tempest takes them away like stubble. 25 To whom then will you liken Me, that I should be equal to him? says the Holy One. (Isa 40:22-25 Ampl)

Therefore, when the Spirit, says to the apostle John: " This calls for a mind, to consider that is packed with wisdom and intelligence, it is something for a particular mode of thinking and judging of thoughts, feelings, and purposes." We must understand, just as Yahshua said to the religious leader of His time, I explain to you what is no earth, how will you believe me if I tell of things in heaven? For Paul also says: 11 For what person perceives knows and understands what passes through a man's thoughts except the man's own spirit within him? Just so no one discerns, comes to know and comprehend, the thoughts of God except the Spirit of God. 12 Now we have not received the spirit that belongs to the world, but the Holy Spirit Who is from God, given to us that we might realize and comprehend and appreciate the gifts of divine favor and blessing so freely and lavishly bestowed on us by God. 13 And we are setting these truths forth in words not taught by human wisdom, but taught by the Holy Spirit, combining and interpreting spiritual truths with spiritual language to those who possess the Holy Spirit. 14 But the natural, nonspiritual man does not accept or welcome or admit into his heart the gifts and teachings and revelations of the Spirit of God, for they are folly, meaningless nonsense to him; and he is incapable of knowing them, of progressively recognizing, understanding, and becoming better acquainted with them, because they are spiritually discerned and estimated and appreciated. 15 But the spiritual man tries all things, he examines, investigates, inquires into, questions, and discerns all things, yet is himself to be put on trial and judged by no one, he can read the meaning of everything, but no one can properly discern or appraise or get an insight into him. 16 For who has known or understood the mind, the counsels and purposes of the Lord, so as to guide and instruct Him and give Him knowledge? But we have the mind of Christ, the Messiah and do hold the thoughts, feelings and purposes of His heart. [Isa. 40:13.] (1 Cor 2:11-16 Ampl) Only those to whom, God in His mercy has called, like the apostle Paul, was chosen to revealed the greatest mystery of this age to the church, Christ in us the Hope of Glory, so God now reveals those things, and their sequences, as they will now come to pass.

7 Kings and major kingdom has existed, since the beginning. 1 - Assyria; 2 - Egypt; 3 - Babylon; 4 - Medeo-Persia; 5 - Greece and 6 - Rome. The angel said 5 of these kings have fallen. One is now, from John's perspective, and one more beast is to come. This is the 7 th head of the last beast which John saw. This beast will exist from the time of John, until the last hour, just before the end. Then the eighth king will come. Thus, Alexander the Great is still part of the last Beast, having 7 heads and 10 horns, which will suddenly be broken. He will be broken into 4 and then only, out of one of them will come forth the man of perdition, as was prophesied. Thus, if Obama is the Last Alexander the Great, He will soon behind the scenes be replaced with the Anti-Christ. All this is only to the glory of Yahshua the Messiah, who knew all these things long ago. So that only He may be glorified.

Alexander's Personality

Alexander's personality is well described by the ancient sources. Some of his strongest personality traits seem to have formed in response to his parents. [130] His mother had huge ambitions for Alexander, and encouraged him to believe it was his destiny to conquer the Persian Empire. [130] Indeed, Olympias may have gone to the extent of poisoning Philip Arrhidaeus so as to disable him, and prevent him being a rival for Alexander. [107] Olympias's influence does seem to have instilled huge ambition and a sense of destiny in Alexander, [131] and Plutarch tells us that his ambition "kept his spirit serious and lofty in advance of his years" [132] Alexander's relationship with his father seems to have generated the competitive side of his personality; he seemed to have a need to out-do his father, as his reckless nature in battle suggests. [130] While Alexander worried that his father would leave him "no great or brilliant achievement to be displayed to the world", [10] he still attempted to downplay his father's achievements to his companions. [130]

One of Alexander's most evident personality traits seems to have been his violent temper and rash, impulsive nature, [132] [133] which undoubtedly contributed to some of his decisions during his life. [130] Plutarch thought that this part of his personality was the cause of his weakness for alcohol. [132] Although Alexander was stubborn, and did not respond well to orders from his father, he seems to have been easier to persuade by reasoned debate. [15] Indeed, set beside his fiery temperament, there was a calmer side to Alexander; perceptive, logical and calculating. He had a great desire for knowledge, a love for philosophy and was an avid reader. [19] This was no doubt in part due to his tutelage by Aristotle; Alexander seems to have been intelligent and quick to learn. [15] [130] The tale of his "solving" the Gordian knot neatly demonstrates this. He had great self-restraint in "pleasures of the body", contrasting with his lack of self control with alcohol. [132] [134] The intelligent and rational side to Alexander is also amply demonstrated by his ability and success as a general. [133]

Alexander was undoubtedly erudite, and was a patron to both the arts and sciences. [19] [132] However, he appears to have had little interest in sports, or the Olympic games (unlike his father), seeking only the Homeric ideals of glory and fame. [131] [132] He had great charisma and force of personality, characteristics which made him a great leader of men. [125] [133] This is further emphasized by the inability of any of his generals to unite the Macedonians, and retain the Empire after his death-only Alexander had had the personality to do so. [125]

Obama has been portrayed as a loving and peaceful family man. He has been accepted by all as the greatest leader of our time, all ready. But Obama also is a choleric, one who by strong reasonable ability and charismatic speaking has already convinced thousands to follow his ideologies and ways of doing things. He has been raised up by his pears, to bring the world under one government or rulership. He will also in such away allow money to flow to the kingdom of those whom he serves. But God only says this about all the schemes and plans of the Anti-Christ rulers and systems, which He is putting in place, "I will blow upon them and they will wither, and the whirlwind or tempest takes them away like stubble.

To put the nail into the coffin, God says to John this beast is also 7 hills, which will control all the kings of the world, and finally give all their power and authority to the other king, the little horn. One year ago, on the 26th of March 2009, Archbishop Demetrios, leader of the largest Orthodox Christian jurisdiction in the United States, compared President Obama to 'Alexander the Great' at a Greek Independence Day celebration at the White House. Politico, noting that the president got " a little unexpected flattery " from the hierarch about his crisis management skills, said the archbishop told Obama: "Following the brilliant example of Alexander the Great.you will be able to cut the Gordian knot of these unresolved issues." The unexpected flattery was so over that top that it embarrassed the president and earned the archbishop a link on the Drudge Report. Obama Compared to Alexander the Great

After I heard that a king's plug was pulled, because of the atom bomb that was dropped on the large dragon, which came up out of the east. The Lord showed me a sign of a powerful explosion of an atombomb, exploding in the east. I saw how this explosion went high up into the air, filling the sky and the heavens. It was a mighty blast that caused a great earthquake, so powerful was this explosion. Then another sign or vision appeared in the northern skies. I saw a great beast, having the head of a crocodile, the snout of a duck and on its head it had a conical Chinese hat. I saw how this beast fell right strait backwards. I saw how the beast was blown away by an enormous force, which like a mighty wind blew the beast away. Suddenly the temperature dropped and it became very cold. At that time we knew it was time for us to leave this earth. As we started leaving, I saw the morning star appear in the heavens. The Morning Star seemed clearer than I have ever seen it before. Lord Yahshua reminded us to pay close attention to these prophecies, until the day come for them to come to fulfilment, as the apostle Peter said: 19 And we have the prophetic word made firmer still. You will do well to pay close attention to it as to a lamp shining in a dismal squalid and dark place, until the day breaks through, the gloom and the Morning Star rises comes into being in your hearts. (2Pe 1:19 Ampl) We were very exited and praised and thanked God for the great signs and visions which He had shown us in the heavens. We thanked Him for His great love and mercy towards all men, granting us such grace, revealing these things to his servants. Also see the prophetic newsletter: A star has been born

We must now pay very close attention to all that God had revealed to the prophets and also now to us, through those signs, which He had shown us, for they have already started to come to pass and will not find their final fulfilment in Yahshua's coming. All Glory to His Name so that no one can boast that they have seen or understood these things.
